Abstract
We propose a Drawing-Frequency based Layered (DFL) Canvas approach to reduce a synchronization delay in collaborative web applications. The synchronization delay consists of a network delay and a drawing delay. The network delay is well-argued topic by various researches. We focus on the drawing delay, which is a primary bottleneck of Canvas objects synchronizations. We introduce the DFL Canvas approach in order to solve the drawing problem. The DFL Canvas divides Canvas objects by drawingfrequency. We implemented a collaborative paper editing support system with the DFL Canvas. Users can edit the same document and share Canvas objects on papers in real-time on web browsers. We present an evaluation result that indicates the approach is suited for collaborative paper editing support systems.
